No Ketchup or Coke at Louis' Lunch

A cellphone photo of Louis' Lunch in New Haven

I've been to New Haven frequently over the years, yet had never visited Louis' Lunch. This is where the first hamburger was cooked in 1900. Unique, vertical hamburger grills still in use in the lunchroom. The building is historic and authentic and I enjoyed looking it over while Aaron and I waited for our burgers on a Saturday afternoon this past October.

I recommend that you pass by these burgers. Our experience was very poor. The service was grumpy and short-tempered. The burgers were dry and over-cooked. And the bun? The burgers are served on mass-produced thinly sliced white bread. As a bread maker from Vermont, where every restaurant offers homemade bread, I found Louis' wonder bread unacceptable. Especially since the lunch room seems to be overly vested in remaining ketchup- and Coke-free. The ketchup / Coke ban smells of pretension to me. It would've made my visit to Louis' more enjoyable if I had had a diet Coke or some real bread. A person could use the ketchup to choke down the dead burgers.

Take a photo of the place but don't waste your money here.

Dining at Pacifico

While in New Haven in October, Anna, Aaron, Aaron's mom and I went to the Pacifico Restaurant for dinner. It didn't seem to be as good as it was three years ago, but it was lots of fun going out together! We took the photos with a cell phone. Above: Talapia al Sarten con Croquetas de Alcachofa: Pan seared tilapia with yucca crust served with artichoke, potato and manchego cakes in basil and yellow tomato coulis.

This is what I ordered: Camarones y Vieras con Raviolis de Frijol Negro: Seared sea scallops and shrimp in a chipotle, honey chardonnay sauce with Monterey Jack and black bean ravioli.

Salmon al Sarten: Pan seared Chilean salmon in plantain crust with shrimp and asparagus
enchiladas and yellow tomato coulis.

Atun a la Parrilla: Grilled Yellow Fin Tuna with red quinoa, arugula, sweet plantain and shiitake mushroom tabbouleh salad and saffron, basil mojito sauce.

The appetizers we shared: Quesadilla de Langosta y Aguacate: Lobster and avocado quesadilla with chipotle crème fraiche alioli.

And dessert? Columbian Dark Chocolate Cake. We had to order extra because I don't share.

Twinkling Fractal Theory

I found this article at smashits.com. There are many other references to this that you should browse Google. It's a fascinating and new topic.

My photo is of old glass insulators that I photographed this past summer on a train ride in St. Johnsbury. Now that glass is fractal, I can use the photo here!

A Little Frozen Spider

This tiny spider is frozen to the outside of the window. I used a 4x macrofilter, f20, with flash to get this shot. I used all combinations of f-stops and filters and flash. This was the best combination. It is a very young barn spider.
